Totally satisfied with the looks, feel and performance of this car. Worth every penny.
2013 E550 Cabriolet - Simply the BEST CHOICE.

I just purchased a 2013 E550 Cabriolet. I had looked at the Audi S5 (no way/too cheap looking inside, and no conventional automatic), The BMW 335i (body style already outdated/dated interior) the Lexus IC350 (the whole steering collumn and windshield header shook/shaked on bumps/BAD chassis flex/sub-standard unitbody torsional strength). So, after driving a Mercedes E350 (E350 had more than sufficient power but no linear power feel like a V-8 twin-turbo) the E550 cabriolet was the obvious choice - for me. You drive and decide, as they are both terrific. $70,825 MSRP on the E550 I bought. Cost me $66,000 with discounts. Why someone would get a Audi S5, BMW 335i or Lexus IC350 is beyond me. The E550 gets 25 mpg & has 404 HP! The interior is scrumptious. The structure has NO body flex/shake, perfect brakes, 7-speed automatic, incredible Harmon-Kardon stereo Logic 7, fabulous seats. The neck "scrarf" heater, the windshield header pop-up wind deflector. Keep in mind this is a MERCEDES-BENZ. The body structure is like no other - like a ROCK. The doors are heavy and substantial. This is a ton of car for the money. I have the P1 package which gives you 90% of the stuff you would want. It is visually the most smooth and velvety ride on the highway. Much improved over the SL550. Seating position is higher, which I like at 57 years old. You do not "fall-down-into" the seats like many roadster convertibles. I feel this is many notches above a BMW 335i convertible. The twin-turbo direct-injection 404 HP V-8 matched to the 7-speed automatic is just- well - PERFECT. The top is triple-layer, and you don't hear anything when you are on the highway. No wind noise, not outside noise- nothing. I would highly recommend this E550 cabriolet. I'm in California and got mine from Mercedes-Benz Laguna Niguel. They are a fantastic dealer. Bought many Mercedes from them.
